ATR selects Liebherr-Aerospace for new generation air management system

ATR has selected Liebherr-Aerospace to develop, manufacture and supply a new generation air management system for the ATR 42 and the ATR 72 aircraft programs. The system will be developed and produced by Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Toulouse (France), Liebherr's center of excellence for air management systems.

ATR awarded Liebherr-Aerospace for the design, production and service of a new generation air management system for ATR's 42/72 aircraft family. The air management system includes the bleed, air conditioning and cabin pressure control subsystems, together with an optional cooling system that provides supplemental cooling capacity when the aircraft is on ground.

Liebherr-Aerospace leveraged its unique experience in air management systems for turboprop and jet engine regional aircraft to design a highly reliable, system of low weight that is adapted to the aircraft's particular operating conditions. The new generation air management system will generate an enhanced on-board comfort for passengers and crews both in flight and on the ground, while substantially reducing the cost of operations for the airlines.

This new contract is proof of the confidence that ATR has gained through several decades of collaboration with Liebherr since the early years of the ATR 42/72 family.

David Brigante, ATR's SVP Procurement, declared: "We need to make sure passengers are always comfortable, from the moment they step into the aircraft right up until they step out at their destination. Our new air conditioning management system will strongly contribute to further enhance the passenger experience, while substantially minimizing maintenance costs and needs".
